If you read the interviews that I’ve been posting, you might notice something they (almost) all have in common. (Well, okay, I’m sure there are multiple things they all share, but still…) I almost always ask the same closing question: If you could be any flavour of ice cream, what flavour would you be?
A couple people have noticed this, and they’ve asked me if there’s any significance to that question. Honestly? No. But, on one hand, it does make for an interesting list to compile after doing a number of interviews (and in some instances finding the authors on Twitter/Facebook and asking them.. with no context.)
So, here’s the list! Now that this list has been posted though, I do think I’ll be switching to a new question. If you have any suggestions, please do let me know!
Stephen B. Pearl:
“I guess blueberry, to be specific Hewits Goat Milk Blueberry”
Jeffrey J. Mariotte:
“I’d probably be Neapolitan. I’m kind of a basic guy, nothing fancy or overly complicated. But I can’t settle on any one thing … I couldn’t be any single flavor. Chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry is probably just about right for me.”
“I would be Sublime Ripple, with Cayenne Pepper bits.”
“Strawberry, definitely strawberry.”
“Chocolate chip. Best flavour of ice cream ever. Not mint chocolate chip, mind you – I can’t stand mint.”
“Death and thunder flavour ice cream!”
David Anthony Durham:
” Pistachio. But definitely one that is green. If it’s not green.. It’s not me.”
Brandon Sanderson *new* – February 15th
“I would be Brandon flavoured ice cream.”
*Clicking on their names, in most instances, will take you to the interview where they said it. However, for the few whose answers I got elsewhere, it’ll just take you to their website.
Andy Angel – Ebookwyrm
ARamone – The Arched Doorway
“I’m not sure.. Probably something sour.”
Why? Because, why not?
If you have any suggestions for silly questions to ask next, please let me know in the comments! (Or, feel free to leave your own answer!)
- Help! My Ice Cream Is Hysterical! (allthosesmallthings.wordpress.com)
Not a silly question, but how about “If you had the world’s undivided attention, what would you say?”
At our dinner table, we sometimes ask “What was your favourite part of today?” It’s not really a silly question, but it is one that everyone seems to enjoy answering:) Kind of a mini gratitude exercise.
That seems like a great question, and it’s a wonderful idea! I like it, thank you. I may use it. :)
Becca, what flavour of ice cream would you be?
That’s a good question! I honestly have no idea though.. How about yourself?
